Fifteen phase transmission line protection using daubechies-4 wavelet transform
In this work, the daubechies-4 wavelet transform (Db4WT) is utilized for fault detection and faulted phase recognition in a fifteen phase transmission line (FPTL). The daubechies-4 wavelet transform has been widely investigated using the MATLAB model of a 765 kV, 200 km long fifteen phase transmission line. The fifteen phase fault currents measured by the current measurements blocks connected at the bus-1 of the fifteen phase transmission line are entered to the wavelet transform algorithm. The first level detail coefficients of the fifteen phase currents are then calculated. The fault detection is carried out with great correctness.
